2019 Guide to Christmas in Charleston

There is nothing more magical than Christmas in Charleston. There aren’t too many places where you can go from sand between your toes, to hot cocoa and cookies with Santa, to singing along to Gospel holiday classics all in the same day. 

To help you plan your 2019 Christmas in Charleston, we’re sharing some of our must-do holiday events. And, of course, you cannot visit Charleston without going shopping! Our gift guides highlight some of our most popular Charleston gifts and boutiques. You are certain to find something special for everyone on your list (and a few things for yourself, too!).

Most importantly, holidays are about being with family and friends, which is why we are the perfect accommodation for large gatherings. You can reserve one, two, or all three suites for the flexibility of up to 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
